My children are 11 & 13 years now & I had forgotten how wonderful babies can be. This weekend my sister has come to visit with her gorgeous, six month old daughter (& husband & 3 year old son).

They have all gone to park & I am here getting Sunday lunch ready (a roasty), but this morning (and yesterday) I have had many hours to hold, cuddle & play with my neice. I have been struck how she sits with such a straight back & gazes at the world with such a calm acceptance - it has been a lovely experience & one I hope I can take to the cushion.

Just noodling (again )
